Peeling back layers

Hey! The name’s Michelle D’souza. I’m a tomboy in fancy-dress. In June 2012, I gave up making a good living as a teacher at an international school, to make a good life!

I might look like the stern teacher I used to be, but in reality I care very little about anything that doesn’t matter in my large scheme of things. If I don’t grin when I see you, that’s probably because I’m concentrating on how well the parallel universe in my head is functioning. I sometimes like to do things differently just to rock the boat…to stir things up a bit…

Other admissions: I think the status quo is retarded. I frequently have problems with authority. I pray I never make the mistake of returning to cubicle nation.

There’s a little more about me here.  In addition to the list below, this is what inspires me:

I love silence
